 The Phillips Reboot Packages 

Galvanising businesses following Covid-19

As businesses are now re-energising and re-focussing following the easing of the lockdown restrictions, we have created four Reboot Packages to help you achieve the right take-off as you launch into the ‘new normal.’

Through The Check Up, The Follow Up, The Stay Alert and The Full Works packages, we provide timely and effective advice, covering your key commercial and employment contracts.

The packages provide tailored advice and, in some cases, one-to-one advice to discuss your business concerns and any issues raised by our red flag reports.

What Our Clients Say

Mrs M Plackett, Basingstoke
"Having used Phillips Solicitors a few times in the past, they were our first choice to contact when we wanted to complete our Wills. Our solicitor assigned to us was Sian Lias and she was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and very professional. We were very pleased with the service we received. Sian made having our Wills created a very straightforward process and we are pleased we returned to Phillips Solicitors."
Jane Royle, Basingstoke
"From the first meeting onwards I felt supported and guided through the huge range of emotions that came along with the divorce. Phillips gave me sound advice on many different matters regarding the divorce and I always felt my many questions were valued and dealt with no matter how small it was."
Sarah Beeny, Property Ladder
"Phillips are the only solicitors I could recommend wholeheartedly. I have used them for years for all our property negotiations and they have never disappointed us."
Andy Downes, Woking
"A big thank you to Phillips Solicitors for their excellent service throughout the sale of my late mother's house. In particular, both Janine and Joanne were very professional, patient, and understanding throughout the whole process which was not straight forward. I would have no hesitation in using Phillips Solicitors again, or recommending to friends and acquaintances."
Mrs Adams, Reading
"Phillips worked incredibly hard to achieve a much more positive, sustainable future as well as financial security that would never have otherwise been achieved for me and my children. They have been solid and dependable and shown absolute integrity throughout. Phillips were direct and firm but at the same time kind and reassuring. They really cared and never lost sight of achieving fairness as well as financial security, and peace of mind, for my family, for which I will be forever grateful."
Mrs Coles, Basingstoke
"This was my first encounter with a law firm and I had little idea what to expect in the divorce process. Phillips listened, understood my situation and made the law completely accessible to me, whilst helping me to avoid my negotiations with my ex-husband becoming acrimonious. I really valued feeling 'part of the conversation', being given regular updates and not left wondering what was going on."
Wendy Graham
"Everyone's busy these days so it's really refreshing to find great service, great response rates and a great team of people who all do their very best to look after our conveyancing matters and make our lives easier. We know we can depend on Zoe and her team, especially to give us the answers when we want them."
Terry and Paula Bullent
"Thank you so much for the very professional way you handled our conveyancing. Unruffled, clear and always personable - we know we made it somewhat more complicated than usual by dealing with it all from Crete, but you never revealed any irritation at all."
Neil Powell, Basingstoke
"Consistently high service levels are really important to me, my family and my business, so I value the peace of mind I get from handing my legal affairs to the professional teams at Phillips."
Keith Burgess, Basingstoke
"We had a shocking experience with executors forced on us by a Will writer, so we were heartily relieved when you took on our case and rescued us from their clutches. You've sorted out my mother’s probate and we’ve now got properly drawn up Wills."
Gavin Hill-Smith
"Phillips always takes the stress out of moving house for me, that's why I've been back more than once."
Geraldine Walker, Basingstoke
"I am so much happier and cannot believe I could ever be so happy after everything I went through - I am really very grateful to Phillips, for everything you have done for me and my daughter through helping me in my divorce."
Stuart Gordon, FXMS Logistics, Basingstoke
"Good, unemotional, competent advice is what I need for my business. The commercial team at Phillips consistently provide this, together with an excellent relationship and an understanding of my business issues."
Philippe Allison, Hook
"I have every confidence in Phillips' capabilities to look after my business and personal affairs. I like the relationships; I like to deal with real humans, face to face; and they give great service which is really important to me.

Mr Gary May
"Sometimes you need to be told how it's going to be, rather than have unrealistic promises made and not fulfilled. That's what I value about Phillips, they cut through the jargon, give you realistic options rather than follow a process and they do what they say they'll do. Result? A good outcome for your business and private issues.

Russell Hill, Bramshott
"You have been such a rock and have given me impeccable advice when I needed it most - I can recommend Phillips to anyone facing challenging times.
Pete Sherwood, Infosec Technologies
"Good employment relations can make all the difference to the smooth running of any successful business and the Phillips employment team have certainly added value to ours, ensuring our actions are well-informed and helping us to unravel complex legislation."
Steve and Sharon George, Basingstoke
"Our solicitors was professional, knowledgeable and courteous at all times in his communication with us and during face-to-face meetings. He explained all options in a clear and concise manner and advised on the best course of action to take to achieve a positive outcome. We always felt that he had our best interests to the fore and had thoroughly studied all documents provided to him. He is a credit to Phillips Solicitors. Should we be in need of legal services in the future we would certainly not hesitate to contact Phillips."
Rob Sendall, Hook
"Phillips Solicitors and in particular the very capable senior partner Howard Gardener have provided me with an absolutely first class service. The advice was always clear, confident and unambiguous and the outcome was better than I could have hoped for. I shall enthusiastically recommend Howard in future and wish all at Phillips well. "
SF - Chineham
"I cannot praise our solicitor highly enough. He was been incredible in dealing with my case. From my first meeting he was very professional and highly personable; showing sensitivity and understanding whilst remaining totally focused on his legal role. He handled my case impeccably and I now recommend him to all my friends and family."
Dr D P, Heckfield
"I can really recommend the services of Phillips Solicitors to anyone in this area who is thinking of buying a residential property. Joanne Hammans in particular and her team went out of her way at every opportunity to ensure the fastest and smoothest purchase of a property for our family in Bracknell. At every stage her team was very responsive, thank you."
The Breen's of Basingstoke
"My Wife, our Son and I are extremely grateful for your expertise in facilitating our Sale and Purchase.
Your tenacity and professionalism proved to be a driving force, aiding in a swift transaction.
It is widely understood that any legal work undertaken needs to be clinically managed, and where you exceeded our expectations was when our original purchaser backed out.
The team presented a personable side, fielding our questions, alleviating concerns and providing sage advice time after time, especially our main point of contact Joanne.
Whatever you do... please don't change the formula."
Mrs G, Basingstoke
"Thank you so much Sheila, as it seems you gave me more strength to be able to speak up when I needed to. I really appreciate what you did for us and the children. "
AL, Winchester
"Oh my gosh Gill, I’m completely overwhelmed. I feel like my words thanking you is not enough. I know you did your job but you also did it with passion. I can’t thank you enough for being totally open and so supportive. This is how all lawyers should be. Advise but also care. You acted as if the problem wasn’t mine alone. I trusted you so much that it was because of you I was able to at least carry on. I’m really really thankful to have known you."
Mrs L, Basingstoke
"May I say that my statement is beautifully written. It’s just wonderful to have all my thoughts, hopes and fears put down so well on paper. Thank you very much Elizabeth for listening to me. We are very lucky to have you with us on this journey. "
Dulisha and Sam, Wokingham
"We recently worked with Phillips Solicitors on the purchase of our new home and are extremely satisfied and happy with the way the team dealt with us.
They were very prompt and responsive in advising us of everything specially during a very strange time around Covid. Thanks a lot for your support Trish and Zoë.
Karen Baynton Kimpton, Wokingham
"I managed to purchase a house in the middle of lockdown. These solicitors were most helpful and productive. My conveyancing solicitor was fantastic at keeping me informed and her fast response to my many emails was great. I’d recommend highly."
"It has been a pleasure to have Jo as my solicitor. Buying and selling houses is a stressful business especially during lockdown but she helped enormously and was always available when needed. Emails were dealt with very quickly and queries were resolved. Thank you so much Jo."
Ade Walker, Basingstoke
"I cannot thank Max Hope and his colleagues enough for the guidance and support they have offered me over the last year. Providing excellent legal advice, the professionalism and determination to resolve my issue exceeded my expectations. Following the care I received I would unreservedly recommend Phillips legal services."
Laura, Guildford
"Both Zoe Baxter and Trish Coutts were very professional as they guided me through my first ever mortgage and house purchase. They made the process relatively painless by responding to my queries in a timely manner, with comprehensive information. Thank you both very much indeed."
Kim Chandler, Oakley
"We recently used Phillips solicitors to deal with the legal side of buying our home. Despite being mid pandemic everything ran smooth and they were very responsive to email and calls."
Bill Spreckley, regional director of Stacks Property Search
"Jon Coles has been great this year for me and my team at Stacks Property Search. Despite being the busiest he could possibly be, I still feel that Jon and his colleagues at Phillips prioritise my clients which has been massively appreciated. I cannot praise Jon enough - he's brilliant."
Victoria, Rugby
"I cannot recommend Jacqueline Kendal and Phillips more strongly. I had an extremely upsetting employment issue which Jacqueline helped me navigate. She was extremely approachable and friendly whilst being objective and professional throughout.
I trusted her advice and it was very clear from the outset that she is very emotionally intelligent and knew how to guide the discussion even when I felt quite emotionally invested in it.
I imagine employment issues are often quite emotive and Jacqueline steered me expertly through the process and helped inform my expectations and ultimately obtain a satisfactory outcome."
Bethany, Ash
"The process of buying my first home through shared ownership was made stress free by Trish Coutts who was very kind and efficient. No question was silly and she always took the time to explain anything I was unsure about. She was a pleasure to deal with and I would recommend Phillips Solicitors highly."
Paul, Solihull
"A first-rate professional experience. I've used Phillips for legal matters since 1987, and over the past two years they've completed all the legal work related to the sale of eight properties.

The bottom line is that I have never had any concerned about the quality of their work and their pro-active approach to getting the transactions completed.

Matthew Morris-Ashton has been our principal contact and is everything you'd expect.

In essence, Phillips provide a good value, high quality legal service and I thoroughly recommend them."
Jude, from Basingstoke
"We are very grateful for Phillips Solicitors in particular Matthew Morris-Ashton for his assistance with a purchase of a commercial property in Basingstoke. He is extremely professional, efficient and super helpful.

Matthew made the entire process smooth and completely painless.

Thank you very much!! "
Dr Dan Zhang, Leamington Spa
"I was very happy to have found Phillips Solicitors when I needed help to purchase my property. The first law firm I contacted was not able to recognise a legal document issued by my home country due to language barriers. I found an interesting note on Phillips' website that Mr Matthew Morris-Ashton has a strong following of clients from my country. I tried my luck and was very lucky.

Mr Morris-Ashton is thorough and professional. He cares about client's interests so that he is not just responsive but proactive. I was very delighted to deal with him and his firm. Strongly recommended."
Caryl Tiller, Christchurch
"Thank you to Jon Coles and his team for the most amazing service.

You all made everything so easy and uncomplicated. In what could have been a terribly stressful time was made as pleasant as moving house could be.

Thank you, thank you, thank you."
Mark Gambrill, Basingstoke
"Having recently used Phillips Solicitors for our house move I can happily recommend them. Both Trish Coutts and Zoe Baxter were excellent in their response information and timing even when faced with last minute changes to the process. We don't plan to move for many years but if the solicitors are still there when we do, I will not hesitate to use them."
Tony Winter, Basingstoke
"I used Philips Solicitors for the purchase of my first home using the shared ownership scheme. Trish Coutts and the team where very helpful throughout the whole process. They got everything sorted for me as quickly as possible. I would highly recommend."
John Ewing
"Phillips handled a probate and house sale for me and did an excellent, extremely thorough and professional job. I would like to especially thank Matthew Morris Ashton, who handled the house sale. This was sold at auction and the buyer did not initially come up with the funds, however thanks to Matthew’s persistence, the deal finally successfully closed."
Donna Fearn, Andover
"I instructed Phillips Solicitors to act on my shared ownership sale. They gave amazing service, completing the whole process in two weeks when the other solicitors brought the day forward. They were very professional, responsive, good value for money and I would highly recommend!
Trish dealt with my house sale and I couldn’t ask for a better person, 6 out of 5!!!"
Anita Lasak-Horbowicz – Sherfield on Loddon
"I would like to thank Zoe and Jakki for their support and excellent service. I asked you guys for a quote and got an immediate reply. Everything was completed quickly.
We had absolutely fantastic service especially in the difficult times for us. I would highly recommend Phillips Solicitors. Once again thank you for your five-star service. X."
Andrew Vale - Andover
"I first used Phillips Solicitors back in 2010 for my first property purchase on Shared Ownership and was taken back with how great the service was.
Zoe Baxter was my appointed solicitor and kept me informed at all stages of the purchase.
11 Years on and I contacted Zoe Baxter at Phillips Solicitors to deal with the sale and purchase of my property. I knew I could be confident that everything would be handled professionally and efficiently. I wasn't wrong and at times where I didn't understand something or was a little concerned, Zoe was there to offer assistance or explain what the next steps were.
I couldn't fault Zoe Baxter or Phillips Solicitors. I've been blown away and my customer experience with yourselves has been exemplary. Thank you."
Sophie and James
"Symone Gamble kept us updated throughout the whole process, offering reassurance when needed and taking the time to explain things clearly and Jamie Wren supported us in the days leading up to completion. He was also happy to explain anything we were unsure of.
I had also popped into the office a couple of times to drop off paperwork and make payments. We were always greeted warmly.
We will happily be recommending Phillips to friends and family as we have been really happy with the service, owing to the professionalism shown by everyone we have come in contact with. "
Avis Frankham, Basingstoke
"We recently instructed Simon Arneaud to assist in a litigation matter. We found him very helpful and professional as he guided us in a caring, considerate way.
His dealings with the other party were firm, but non-confrontational thereby avoiding unnecessary conflict. Excellent service - we would recommend.
Michael Wilkinson, Fleet
"I was looked after incredibly by Simon Arneaud at Phillips Solicitors. He gave me incredible comfort especially when I was wobbling and getting upset with the pressure of my case. His bedside manner always made me feel so much better. His professionalism is absolutely first-class and he constantly demonstrated his excellent knowledge. His thought processes and approach to my case was exemplary. I have no doubt he treats every case like this, and Phillips have themselves an amazing team member."
Maggie Lees, Brighton
"We instructed Phillips to deal with a litigation matter and we couldn't recommend Simon Arneaud and the team highly enough. From the offset we felt listened to, and they dealt with everything in a professional and timely manner. We will most definitely be using them in the future for other work!"
Paul Sheppard, Hertford
"Having dealt with Simon Arneaud on a corporate contractual dispute, I found Phillips and Simon Arneaud's professional advice helped us to navigate through a very stressful dispute resulting in a very satisfactory outcome. I would thoroughly recommend the services of Simon and the team at Phillips Solicitors."
